For stealing a kiss from a Jewish girl in a public place, Ismail Salim Hassan, a native Arab, was sentenced to one month in prison.

The Jewish girl was selling flags at a local charity bazaar. Hassan offered to buy one of the flags, and the offer was accepted by the girl who thought him Jewish. When, however, Hassan kissed her, the police were called and he was taken into custody.
